September Book Announcement

30Aug09

Our book club selection for September is Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi:

Persepolis is the story of Satrapi’s unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trails of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming–both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up. (from Random House)

You can read The Complete Persepolis or read the two individual books, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood & Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return.
